Boxing and poker – maybe a start on something new?

Even though both sports are known for intense action and rough characters, boxing and poker aren’t usually combined. This didn’t stop Gus Hansen (known as one of the biggest full tilt poker names)and Danish poker pro Theo Jorgensen from duking it out. Both know as skilled poker players in both the online poker and live tournament circuit, did quite well as shown in the video.

Mares and Santa Cruz battle for LA bragging rights

By John J. Raspanti: They met seven years ago in where else, a boxing gym in Southern California. Both were local products. The two Mexican Americans spared roughly 30 rounds for the next few days. Abner Mares was 22 at the time, Leo Santa Cruz two years younger. Neither will say who had the advantage. When the sparing was over, Mares figured he’d likely fight Santa Cruz again someday in a real fight. “I’ve always thought that when you’re in the gym training with someone around...

Bute returns after long layoff to stop Di Luisa

By John J. Raspanti: After disposing of little-known Italian Andrea Di Luisa in the fourth round last Saturday night at the Bell Centre in Montreal, CN., former IBF super middleweight champion Lucian Bute shouted, “I’m back.” But is he? Bute, 35, hasn’t been the same fighter since being steamrolled by Carl Froch in May 2012. Froch not only beat the tar out of the transplanted Romanian, he took away his mojo. Immediately after the match, Bute talked rematch, but his words rung hollow, especially Bute returns after long layoff to stop Di Luisa

Boxing’s “Triangle” Between Golovkin, Kovalev and Ward

By Ken Hissner: There are not enough “super star” boxers in the game today. Now we have one of them in WBA super middleweight champion Andre “S.O.G.” Ward, 28-0, who stepped away from boxing for 19 months due to “promoter problems” coming back and “kinda” calling out people like Gennady “GGG” Golovkin, 33-0, WBA middleweight and WBC interim champion and probably the second best P4P boxer in the world today. He is on a 20 fight knockout streak... Boxing’s “Triangle” Between Golovkin, Kovalev and Ward

Unbeaten Regis “Rougarou” Prograis Wow’d Them in AC

By Ken Hissner: This writer was not familiar with unbeaten Houston super lightweight Regis “Rougarou” Prograis, 15-0 (12), when he entered the ring with a “werewolf” mask on at the Bally’s show in Atlantic City August 7th. But before the night was out the entire room was “wow’d” by his performance as was his unbeaten opponent Amos “Too Smooth” Cowart, 11-0-1, who came in with red spiked hair looking like a rooster!

Behind on the scorecards, Glowacki upsets Huck

By John J. Raspanti: Though undefeated, Krtsztof Glowacki (25-0, 16 KOs) was given little chance of upsetting defending WBO cruiserweight champion Marco Huck (38-3-1, 26 KOs) last Friday night at the Prudential Center in Newark, NJ. Things looked bleak for the challenger when he found himself on his back in round six, courtesy of a wide left hand. But Glowacki, a star in Poland but little known in the United States, was hardly finished. Five rounds later, Glowacki stopped Huck in round 11 to Behind on the scorecards, Glowacki upsets Huck

How good is heavyweight prospect Parker?

By John J. Raspanti: New Zealand heavyweight Joseph Parker began perfecting his world class jab before he hit kindergarten. At the age of 3, he was popping his tiny knuckles into the palm of his father Dempsey, who just happened to be named after legendary heavyweight champion Jack Dempsey. “I don’t remember a time when boxing was not a part of our family life,” Parker told Anson Wainwright of ringtv, “My father Dempsey had always loved boxing and we would always watch the boxing fights on...

Avila goes for first title August 8

By John J. Raspanti: Manual “Tino” Avila has engaged in 17 professional fights. He’s won them all, scoring seven of those wins by knockout. On August 8, Avila, still considered a prospect, will step up in class when he meets Yoandris Salinas at the Fantasy Springs Resort Casino in Indio, California. Up for grabs is the vacant NABF super bantamweight title.

Garcia remains undefeated by stopping Malignaggi in round nine

By John J. Raspanti: Light welterweight champion Danny Garcia, fighting as a welterweight for the first time in his career, stopped game Paulie Malignaggi in round nine at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York Saturday night. In round one it was obvious that Garcia (31-0, 18 KOs) was the stronger fighter. He kept Malignaggi (33-7, 7 KOs) on the end of his jab--and also landed two pretty good right hands. Malignaggi did some good work in round two. He connected with a few light, but scoring Garcia remains undefeated by stopping Malignaggi in round nine

Britain’s brightest? What’s next for Amir Khan

Britain’s brightest? What’s next for Amir Khan

Amir Khan is one of Britain’s brightest boxing stars who has been the unfortunate victim of poor choices, politics and problems that have limited and hindered his rise to stardom. Following Floyd Mayweather’s victory over Manny Pacquiao in May 2015, Khan was touted as a potential challenger for Mayweather. As of yet, however, the fight hasn’t materialised. So what is the fate of the 31-3 welterweight? Britain’s brightest? What’s next for Amir Khan

Malignaggi will need some magic to defeat Garcia

By John J. Raspanti: At this point in his life, 34-year-old Paulie “Magic Man” Malignaggi might be better known as a ringside commentator instead of a two-division world champion. Malignaggi’s lone fight last year was a painful one. He met former IBF welterweight champion Shawn Porter at the DC Armory in Washington, DC. Malignaggi can barely break an egg with his punches. He’s scored seven knockouts in his 39-fight career. His lack of punching power has hurt him. In spite of this disadvantage, M Malignaggi will need some magic to defeat Garcia

On the Move: MaxBoxing World Rankings 7-28-15

By Derek Bonnett: One of the most consistent aspects of professional boxing is erratic scoring. Not every bad scoring job yields a victory to the wrong fighter, but a controversial winner certainly gets boxing aficionados fired up to critique the work of a judge. This weekend, like so many, saw three judges in unison deliver a poor verdict to the wrong fighter, screwing over a rising prospect. It almost could have been predicted. Prior to his bout with Yuniesky Gonzalez, Jean Pascal was pretty On the Move: MaxBoxing World Rankings 7-28-15

Kovalev demolishes Mohammedi in three rounds

By John J. Raspanti (Photo © David Spagnolo, Main Events): Coming off the biggest victory of his career, an eighth round stoppage of former champion Jean Pascal four months ago, WBO, WBA and IBF light heavyweight champion Sergey Kovalev admitted that staying focused against 50-1 underdog Nadjib Mohammedi was a challenge. In the end it made no difference, as Kovalev (28-0-1, 25 KOs) stopped Mohammedi (37-4, 23 KOs) in round three Saturday night at the Mandalay Bay Events...

“Stay Busy” – Sergey Kovalev vs. Nadjib Mohammedi

By Allan Cerf (Photo © David Spagnolo, Main Events): It’s difficult for your author to believe that this “stay busy” fight needs to happen; that said, it should be a lot of fun as all fights ending in KO/TKO are…and this brawl is virtually certain to end with one boxer unable to continue. Guess which one... Nadjib Mohammedi stepped up in class against Nathan Cleverly, the once-hyped Welsh fighter with a college degree in mathematics and lost. Cleverly himself took on Sergey Kovalev just under 2 “Stay Busy” – Sergey Kovalev vs. Nadjib Mohammedi

Down goes Price

By John J. Raspanti: After the fall, the six-foot, eight-inch giant stood in his corner with a dazed expression on his face, tears rolling down his cheeks. David Price had been knocked out in a professional boxing match for the third time in two years. His plunge had been swift and dramatic. Only three years ago, Price, of Liverpool, ENG. appeared to be on his way to a shot at the heavyweight championship of the world. ESPN had named him prospect of the year. His amateur background...

Saying goodbye to the LA Sports Arena

By John J. Raspanti: After recently covering the Mauricio Herrera vs. Hank Lundy fight at the LA Sports Arena, I wandered into the deserted square where the work crew was breaking down the ring. First the turnbuckle came down, followed by the ropes and the ring posts until all that remained was a platform with a blue canvas. It didn’t take long to bring it all down.

"One-Time" is no one-hit wonder

By Jason Gonzalez: Tampa, FL-- Keith Thurman’s homecoming was a huge success. Thurman, who is regarded by many as the heir to throne once Floyd Mayweather retires, had to dig deep in order to overcome adversity halfway into his scrap with former world champion Luis Collazo. The Brooklyn southpaw, nearly upended Thurman, via a vicious body assault that nearly prompted the champion to take a knee. But besides looking shaky in the 5th round, Thurman dominated the fight en route... "One-Time" is no one-hit wonder
